Eye Candy Friday: Jon Snow

Posted September 1, 2017 by Rowena in Features | 3 Comments

I’m back in the swing of things with the blog and I knew that my first Eye Candy Friday post back was going to be one that doesn’t need an introduction. Someone who has been featured before because he really is this awesome and I really do love him this much. This week’s Eye Candy Friday is…Jon Snow.

Just in case you need an introduction, here’s one from my boy Davos:

You don’t believe him. I understand that. It sounds like nonsense. But if destiny has brought Daenerys Targaryen back to our shores, it has also made Jon Snow King in the North. You were the first to bring Dothraki to Westeros? He is the first to make allies of wildlings and Northmen. He was named Lord Commander of the Night’s Watch. He was named King in the North. Not because of his birthright. He has no birthright. He’s a damn bastard. All those hard sons of bitches chose him as their leader because they believe in him. All those things you don’t believe in, he faced those things. He fought those things for the good of his people. He risked his life for his people. He took a knife in the heart for his people. He gave his own l-…

I’ll be here forever sharing my favorite Jon Snow gifs but well, you get the idea. I love him.

Memorable Quotes from Season 7

My father always said, “The man that passes the sentence, swings the sword,” and I have tried to live by those words. But I will not punish a son for his father’s sins.

They fought together, against their common enemy. And we need to do the same if we’re going to survive.

Touch my sister, and I’ll kill you myself.

You all crowned me your king. I never wanted it. I never asked for it. But I accepted it because the North is my home. It’s part of me, and I will never stop fighting for it, no matter the odds. But the odds are against us. None of you have seen the Army of the Dead. None of you. We can never hope to defeat them alone. We need allies, powerful allies. I know it’s a risk. But I have to take it.

I’m not going to swear an oath I can’t uphold. When enough people make false promises, words stop meaning anything. Then there are no more answers, only better and better lies.

Lady Lyanna Mormont from House Mormont speaks for me with this:

But House Mormont remembers. The North remembers. We know no king, but the kind in the North who’s name is Stark. I don’t care if he’s a bastard, Ned Stark’s blood runs through his veins. He’s my king. From this day, until his last day.

Until next week…enjoy!

TV Tuesday (3)

There will only be one show talked about this week. I’m all caught up on all of my shows but this week’s post will be all about Game of Throne’s season 7 finale so like previous weeks, this post is going to be filled to the brim with spoilers so stay away if you haven’t watched the finale.

MAJOR SPOILERS BELOW, READ ON AT YOUR OWN RISK.

This is what I looked like throughout the whole episodes (both times I watched it):

I freaking loved this episode. There was so much action, angst, and just…stuff going on that I couldn’t watch it fast enough. If I had a gripe, it would have been the Theon stuff. Sure, his character needs that redemption but since I don’t care for his character, I didn’t need it. The other gripe that I thought about would be…where was Gendry? I missed him.

Anyway, let’s get on with it…

The meeting at Kings Landing

Alright, so I’ve been really curious about how this was going to turn out. All of the big players in one venue for the first time. It’s one of those things where once again, everyone in attendance hates each other but they really need to put their differences aside and discuss more important matters. Matters of life and death.

I had a feeling that Cersei was going to do exactly what she did and I was so happy to see that Jamie did exactly what I wanted him to do. The right thing. I honestly think that his redemption arc ends with him killing the Mad Queen. And I think Cersei is the Mad Queen, not Daenerys. I think he’s going to be the one that kills Cersei or will play an important part in killing Cersei for the better of the realm.

I love Jon Snow. Every week before an episode begins, I don’t think that I could love this man more than I do but I’m always wrong because I loved Jon more this week than any other week and that’s big. I loved when he said that he couldn’t serve two queens and he’s already pledged himself to his Queen Daenerys. Goodness, he’s Ned Stark through and through. <3

Starks vs. Little Finger

HA!!! Take that to everyone who doubted Arya!

The minute that Arya walks into the great hall and Bran is sitting next to Sansa, I knew that they were all in it together. I knew that what I thought was right…was right dammit. LOL. Oh man, I love being right.

Arya is right. Being Lady of Winterfell suits Sansa. If I was wrong about anything this season, it was her. I haven’t liked her character since the beginning and for some reason, I thought she’d continue to disappoint me but she’s been surprising me at every turn. I thought for sure that Cersei would have influenced her a lot more than she did and while you can see that Sansa has learned a lot from Cersei, at her core, she’s a Stark…and Stark’s are the good guys. She hit it on the nose when she said, “I’m a slow learner, it’s true. But I learn.” She’s grown into such a strong woman and an even stronger leader and I know that her parents would be proud of the woman she’s grown up to be.

It was a great scene, seeing the Stark pack come together to survive. I would say RIP Littlefinger but I don’t want him to rest peacefully. He doesn’t deserve it, in my eyes.

Jamie and Cersei

Am I the only person that took Jamie’s, “I don’t believe you” to Cersei as he doesn’t believe she’s pregnant and he’s done with her trying to manipulate him by using their children? There’s nobody left. It’s just the two of them and then she holds her stomach and he’s like, “Nope. You ain’t fooling me this time.”

Like I said earlier, I saw the Cersei shenanigans going down but I’m super glad that Jamie ain’t going to stick around and be her little lap dog. You go and keep your word, Jamie.

Sam and Bran


I can get behind a Bran and Sam bromance. I’m glad to see that Bran and Sam talked because now they know the truth….and it’s going to be interesting seeing them tell Jon. I’m sure that some time will be spent on the angst of Daenerys losing the right to the throne though I’m sure that Jon will give her the throne since he doesn’t want it. Still, these two together will be good for the realm. Bran sees everything and so he’ll help Sam record everything in the book that they’re going to write together…to tell the story of the song of fire and ice.

#BOATSEX

The coming together of Jon Snow and Daenerys Targaryen was inevitable. They’ve got some big time feelings for each other and everyone can see it. Everyone knows it. They acted on those feelings this week and holy cow. The internet exploded with yays and some nays and I’m here for it.

They’ve gone through such different journeys, such separate journeys that have brought them together but I’ve wanted these two to come together in the exact way that they’ve come together since I started liking both of them back in season 1. Sure, I could have done without them being related but their union makes sense in the world that GRRM created for these characters and the love that is strong and true between these guys is such a sight to behold. I love it.

I’m pretty anxious to see what next season has in store for these two. My theory is that they will find out the truth but will struggle with different things. Dany will struggle with her purpose since Jon will be the rightful heir to everything she’s fighting for. She will struggle with his new title and will wonder if she’ll have to fight him before Cersei. I think his struggle will be coming to grips with who he truly is. He won’t feel like a true Stark. He won’t feel like a true Targaryen..and I think him telling Theon this week that he’s a Greyjoy AND he’s a Stark was foreshadowing of his struggle next season. He will struggle with Ned’s lies and won’t realize that Ned was protecting him with those lies at first. He will bend the knee to Daenerys in the end because his love for her will be far more important to him than the throne and then he’s going to die a noble death and Dany will raise their baby dragons on the throne after Jamie kills Cersei. LOL.

The Wall has Fallen

The wall falling marks that winter is freaking here. That big ass white walker army FINALLY made it to the wall after walking there all season long. We also see ice dragon Viserion in action and whoa. Just whoa.

The end is near guys…and I can’t even deal with all of it. The end. The war. The baby dragons. The ice dragon. I can’t deal with any of it. Still, this season was freaking great.

What did you think of this season? What did you think of the finale? What do you see happening next season? What do you WANT to happen next season? Let’s talk!

TV Tuesday (2)

Posted August 22, 2017 by Rowena in Features | 8 Comments

I only watched one TV show this week and I watched that one show every single day, some episodes, multiple times and if you guess that I watched Game of Thrones then you were right because…

Lots of stuff have gone down and I’m here for it all. Every single bit of it. I’m going to go through each section of the episode and just talk through them all. There will be hella spoilers in this post so beware!


gif credits

Sansa & Arya: I’m seeing a lot of hate for Arya online and while I can understand it, I don’t share it. You see, to me, the Stark sisters are smart. They’re wily and I have every faith that Arya and Sansa are working either together or apart on playing Littlefinger. They’re “fighting” with each other because Littlefinger is watching them. I think that Arya was playing her lying game on Sansa this past week because come on…


gif credits

Arya never wanted or wondered what it would be like to dress up as the Lady of Winterfell. She never wanted to be a Lady. She’s always, always, always wanted to be a knight. To be a Lord. To fight…and then when she hands Sansa the dagger, after playing her game, the pointy end is pointed toward Arya, not Sansa. She never planned on killing her sister. She’s going to kill bitch ass, Peter Baelish.

Sansa has come a long way and even though she’s never been my favorite Stark, I do respect her. I don’t think she’s going to do anything shady where Arya is concerned. She’s putting on the same show, for Baelish’s sake. Why do I think that? Because she sent Brienne away. The person who took a vow to protect her at all costs, against anyone who would wish her harm…she doesn’t want anyone to harm Arya because, at the end of the day, she’s family and Starks aren’t about that business. So to everyone spitting harm on Arya and comparing her to Ramsey fucking Bolton and fucking Joffrey?

Jon’s Suicide Squad and the snow battle: I was talking about Jon’s suicide squad with Ames last week and she said, “They’re the team that I didn’t know I wanted” and that is the freaking truth. What a way to bring together some fabulous characters for a single purpose. Sure, that purpose is pretty dumb but I’m here for these guys battling together and bonding and then hopefully uniting against Cersei. I’m not even going to lie, when Jon turns toward the approaching army, standing his ground and then raising his sword to fight?


gif credits

My ovaries exploded because, hot damn, Jon Snow is full battle armor and just all around yumminess? I’m so here for it! I don’t even care that he has to keep getting saved, his heart is so big and his desire to protect his people??? I freaking love it.

My heart hurt so much after Viserion goes down and even though I knew it was going to happen, that didn’t stop me from mourning the hell out of the dragon. Gah. I can’t even deal with the Night King pulling his ass out of the water and turning him. That’s going to be hella drama once Daenerys and Jon find out.

But this was me when he went down:


gif credits

I’m still so sad. But??? Someone on Tumblr posted, “There are only two dragons left so the possibility that Jon will ride the dragon named after his biological father???”

That shit got me so shook. I’m equal parts excited and sad that everything is finally happening because we’ve been waiting so long for this but I’m also sad that it’s almost over. What a ride it’s been…it’s still not over yet so let me cut it out.

Jon Snow & Daenerys Targaryen: I’m a romance lover at heart so I have been shipping the shit out of Jon Snow and Daenerys Targaryen since season 1, even though it took them 7 years to meet. They’ve only known each other for a handful of episodes and they’re already important to each other. They already have hella feelings for each other and I’m reading all of the haters of the Jonerys ship that their romance is not believable because it’s rushed but I don’t give a damn. Their romance isn’t a slow burn romance. Their romance is a fated lovers one. They’re meant to be together. The author of the books said that them coming together is the point of the entire series. They are the chosen ones to lead the living army against the dead one…and I’ll be sitting over here, waiting for them to finally acknowledge their feelings for each other. Sure, everything is happening pretty fast between them but I believe it because I believe in it. I believe that you can fall in love with someone quickly and I see their feelings for each other the same way everyone else does.

All of the foreshadowings on Jon and Dany’s children was not missed. She can’t have children? Jon will give her some. Ha!

I have some theories on Cersei, her fate and what is going on where she’s at but that’s for next week…this post is long enough.

Are you watching Game of Thrones? Are you as obsessed with it as I am? How are you liking this season? Are you ready for the season finale? (I’m not)
